About the show

Today’s show, all dub.

Back when I was a DJ at WMFO I sometimes used to fill in on some shows under the guise of King Dub. I’d speak with a slight Jamaican patois and pitch shift my voice and add some echo so I would sound like some interdimensional sound selector from the deepest realms of dub.

Dub, for those of you who don’t know, began as instrumentals of songs that appeared on the flipside of 45 rpms. In time, producers like Lee “Scratch” Perry and King Tubby began processing the instruments and vocals with effects such as echo and reverb, often with the instruments and vocals dropping in and out of the mix. But almost always with a massive low bass.

Dub later made it’s presence felt in electronic music and influenced techno, jungle, dubstep, drum and bass, house music, trip hop, ambient music, and hip hop.
